Just for Fun Rubber Stamps and Water Colors!!!

During the month of December Altered Pages is partnering with JFF Just For Fun Rubber Stamps!  Be sure to stop by each day and see what the Altered Pages Design Team has in store for you!  During the month we will be sharing projects from the Just For Fun Design Team.  Comment each day here on our blog for a chance to win our monthly giveaway.  Each day you comment is a chance to win!

Today Karen shares a Water Color Technique in her video using Masks!  Watch and see how she water colors using stamps, inks, an acrylic block and masks! 

After the water colors dry  stamp the Just For Fun Santa in his sleigh over the moon.

For the finishing touch use the Christmas Greeting tag from the Altered Pages Vintage Christmas Tags Collage Sheet,  ink around the edges with red, punch a hole in the top and threaded some twine to make a tiny bow.  Attach the tag to the focal tree with tacky glue. 

Cut paper slightly smaller than the card base. Layer on dark blue cardstock to bring out the colors.

Decorate the inside of your card with the JFF Santa Sleigh.

This technique is great to use all year!!
